The Sausages

     In General
The three on the right are the main characters (Carl, Barry, and Frank).

  • All Men Are Perverts: They're all male and want to get inside the Buns, making dirty jokes and lewd propositions as they wait on the shelf. In Frank's case, he's a Chivalrous Pervert.
  • Brand X: The package they come in is labeled "Fancy Dogs", and has art that makes it look like they're wearing tuxedos.
  • Death by Sex: Pretty much what their fate would amount to. Since it's established that a Sausage has to slide into a Bun in order to have sex, they get eaten while they're doing it.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: Barry (nice) is a friendly and sensitive sausage; Carl (mean) is the most lustful of the sausages (though downplayed, as he's still protective of Barry); Frank (in-between) is presented as a heroic sausage who's willing to save the other foods, but even he has occasional moments of dickishness (such as laughing at Brenda's jokes about Carl).
  • Non-Standard Character Design: The only way to tell the named sausages apart from the others.
    • Frank has a large chin and his eyes are a bit bigger.
    • Carl's face is in the middle of his body rather than on top. Like Frank, he has a large chin and slightly larger eyes.note 
    • Barry is "defective", being short and squat rather than long and thin like the others.
    • Troy has yellow eyebrows and buck teeth.
  • One-Gender Race: All of them are male and were made to be paired up with female buns.



"Hey, look at this! We fuckin' got one! Set 'em straight, boys!"
Voiced by: Seth Rogen, Raúl Anaya (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Big Brother Instinct: He and Carl tell Barry to ignore the taunts he gets from Troy.
  • Big "NO!": He screams this after failing to save Honey Mustard from committing suicide.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: As vocal as his friends in his eagerness about getting laid, but he's committed to being in a "bunogamous" relationship with Brenda and risks his life to protect her.
  • The Chosen One: Honey Mustard tells him about Firewater right before he kills himself.
  • The Hero: With the realization of what The Great Beyond really is, he decides to make it his quest to save everyone from being eaten by the gods instead of hiding away for good.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: It's a very subtle detail, but a lot of his facial expressions are very similar to that of Rogen's.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He has a bit of an assholish side, as he slams the other foods' beliefs about the Great Beyond and exhibits intolerance to those who disagree with him about it (although it's not like he was wrong about what would happen once they got out those doors), and laughs at Brenda's jokes about Carl, but he is the one who tries to save all the foods in the supermarket from being eaten by the humans, and even before that tried to prevent Honey Mustard from jumping to his death.
  • La Résistance: Leads an all-hands revolt against the Humans in the climax.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Twice.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: When he attempts to save Honey Mustard, he ends up falling out of the cart along with Brenda. Thus, they don't get to go home with Camille Toh. Then subverted when it turns out falling out of the cart was a blessing in disguise, as he doesn't have to be eaten along with Brenda.
  • Official Couple: With Brenda in the most prominent romantic pairing, with their status as Love Interests established early in the movie.
  • Only Sane Man: To a certain degree; he is among the least strange of the characters as well as one of the first to realize the truth about the Great Beyond.
  • Punny Name: A sausage named Frank (as in "frankfurter").


"Look at these big ol' buns! [...] Lined up, waiting to get filled with my meat!"

Voiced by: Jonah Hill, Eduardo Garza (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Big Brother Instinct: He and Frank tell Barry to ignore the taunts he gets from Troy.
  • Big Guy Fatality Syndrome: He's certainly bigger than both Barry and Frank...and unfortunately for him, he doesn't get to survive the movie like Barry does.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Out of the three main Sausages, he's the one who wants to get inside a Bun the most. Humorously, there's actually a bun that wants Carl to get inside of her, though they never hook up due to his demise at the hands of Camille Toh.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: He gets stabbed in the back by Camille and gets sliced in half from there to his head.
  • Dies Wide Open: His eyes are still open when Camille slices him in half.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After being humiliated by both Frank and Brenda, he tells Barry to forget Frank ever existed after they get separated from him, though Barry refuses to do so.
  • Famous Last Words: "Barry..."
  • Friend to All Children: Thinks that hurting kids is despicable, if his reaction to Camille eating the Baby Carrots is any indication.
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: Tries to pull this off with Frank on Barry when he doesn't come with them to the Great Beyond. It then turns out that Frank got off easy.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: He tells Barry to snap out of it after his Break the Cutie moment, which allows Barry to escape the house.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: How he dies.
  • Hope Spot: Just when he and Barry are about to escape the house, Camille kills him.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He often comes off as a little self centred, such as when he makes no effort to help Frank and Brenda save Honey Mustard, tells Barry to simply forget Frank ever existed, and speaks mostly of how he wants to get inside a bun. However, he does appear to genuinely care about Barry, and when the truth is revealed about the Great Beyond, Carl decides to make a run for it, but not before stopping to help Barry. In fact, when he is killed, his last words can be taken as a strained attempt to tell Barry to save himself.
  • Large Ham:
    "They're eating children! FUCKING CHILDREN!!""
  • No One Gets Left Behind: When the foods are being massacred and he's about to bolt for the open window, he stops to take Barry with him.
  • Pet the Dog: In spite of being the most lustful sausage, Carl is kind to Barry.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Serves as a significant named character death which underlines how serious the threat to all the food is, and motivates Barry to join Frank.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He and Barry decide to escape the house after finding out their real fate. Only Barry makes it.
  • Trailers Always Spoil: A TV ad revealed his death.
  • Uniformity Exception: He's the only sausage whose face is in the middle of his body rather than at the top (a trait that even Barry has).



Voiced by: Michael Cera, Arturo Castañeda (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Adorkable: He's a slightly awkward little sausage who wants to get inside a bun just like all the other sausages and shows such adorable enthusiasm at the thought of doing so. He still maintains his adorkableness when he helps lead the revolt against the humans.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Some other dogs in the package pick on him for being abnormally shaped, and taunt that there's no bun who would want him.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: He is the smallest and cutest sausage in the package. His voice actor, Michael Cera, is the youngest member of the movie's cast.
  • Badass Adorable: He may look like a cute, harmless little wiener, but he's the one who takes down both Douche and Darren in the end.
  • Birds of a Feather: One of the trailers shows Barry encountering and seeming to hit it off with a bun named Sally who is misshapen like him. They become a couple at the end!
  • Break the Cutie: Suffers serious emotional trauma and disillusionment upon finding out that Humans Are Cthulhu, when he's forced to watch several foods, including his friend Carl, get murdered, sliced up, and Eaten Alive. Barry nearly gets killed himself, and only escapes because Carl gets killed first.
  • Brutal Honesty: Sticks to the harsh truth when he's telling Frank about Carl's death.
    Frank: Did he suffer?
    Barry: N… Oh yeah, he did.
  • Covert Pervert: Despite his cute factor, he's just as eager to get inside a bun as the rest of the sausages.
  • The Cutie: He is a nice, endearing character, who is played by the movie's youngest cast member.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Barry is the first character to kill a human (albeit unintentionally since he didn't plan for the axe to drop on The Druggie and decapitate him).
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Carl smacks him and tells him to snap out of it after his Break the Cutie moment, allowing him to escape by leaping through the open window.
    Carl: Barry! Snap the fuck out of it and RUN!
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: He wants to be a regular-sized sausage instead of a diminutive one. Fortunately, since he managed to hook up with a bun of similar size, this ultimately isn't necessary.



Voiced by: Anders Holm, José Gilberto Vilchis (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Even Evil Has Standards: While he's more of a Jerkass than evil, even he's appalled at the sight of food being eaten by Camille Toh.
  • Hypocrite: Mocked Barry for being too scared to get out of his package and rescue Frank. What was stopping Troy from doing that?
  • Jerkass: Antagonizes the three main characters without showing any likable qualities, especially by insulting and excluding Barry.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We never see him (or the other Sausages and Buns) after Carl dies and Barry escapes, though his survival seems unlikely.


The Buns

     In General

  • All Women Are Lustful: Receptive to the hot dogs' sexual interest in them, although they want to make it clear that they have some standards for choosing a partner.
  • Brand X: The package they come in is labeled "Glamour Buns".
  • Death by Sex: Pretty much what their fate would amount to. Since it's established that a Sausage has to slide into a Bun in order to have sex, they get eaten while they're doing it.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: There's no biological reason for animate bread to have what look like breasts, but that's how you make them look female and attractive.
  • One-Gender Race: The buns are all female, and they are made to be paired up with male sausages.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: They all sport makeup, mascara, and long eyelashes to emphasise their femininity.
  • Visual Pun: They are supposed to resemble vaginas.


"What if the gods are doing this to us because we touched tips! It wasn't even that... I mean it was fine. It's not like anyone writes home and says 'Oh God, I had the best tip.'"

Voiced by: Kristen Wiig, Mireya Mendoza (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • The Fundamentalist: Brenda regards religion more important than anyone else's individual ideas, going as far as to boss around, even insult or backlash anyone who doesn't accept humans as Gods or the Great Beyond as a heavenly refuge.
  • Hypocrite: Suggests that Honey Mustard kill himself due to his inconsistent product name but later help save him from his death when he actually does attempt suicide.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: At the beginning of the film, she makes fun of Carl by saying he won't get inside a Bun and will have to "jackrabbit" instead (with her mimicking the action). Later in the film, when she goes into another package, she encounters another Sausage who comes onto her by asking her if she knows what "jackrabbit" is and mimics the action.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: She's a pretty sassy bun with an Alpha Bitch-like personality who mocks Carl for his unlikely chance at getting with a bun, calls Lavash a "flappy fuck" upon his exit even after accepting his compliment, and suggests that Honey Mustard kill himself due to his indecisive product name which he later ends up actually doing, but she endlessly loves Frank and still cares for his well-being even when differing views separate them.
  • Official Couple: With Frank in the most prominent romantic pairing, with their status as Love Interests established early in the movie.
  • Punny Name: Her surname is Bunson.
  • She's Got Legs: Teresa Taco gets distracted by her legs (as well as her butt) most of the time.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: She beats up a woman for trying to grab Frank.
  • You Are Worth Hell: When asked by Frank why she jumped out of the cart after him instead of continue going into "The Great Beyond", she answers that there's no "Great Beyond" without him.



Voiced by: Nicole Oliver, Xóchitl Ugarte (Mexican Spanish dub)

Barry's love interest, who was accidentally squished by Brenda when she entered another package after falling out of her cart.

  • Birds of a Feather: Created to be this for Barry, as she was accidentally squished by Brenda and bears a similarly mishappen appearance. Foreshadowed when Barry remarks that he's certain that there's a squished bun in the aisle somewhere for him.
  • Love at First Sight: Barry and Sally have sex within seconds of seeing each other.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Originally averted at the beginning where she looked as normal as the rest of the buns, but later invoked when Brenda squishes her in the bun package to make room for herself.
  • Official Couple: Gets together with Barry after they bond over their physical abnormalities.



Voiced by: Kelly Sheridan

A bun who unlike the other buns is actually attracted to Carl.

  • Literal-Minded: When Brenda mocks Carl, Roberta raises her hand to answer the question, "Who in this package would ever let Carl get up in them, huh?". Brenda responds by telling Roberta to put her hand down because she is "ruining [Brenda's] joke".
  • What Does She See in Him?: Brenda is certainly asking that question.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We never find out what happens to her, though it is more than likely she was eaten.

Frank's Companions

     In General 

  • Big Damn Heroes: They help Frank, Brenda, and Barry when the latter's plan backfires.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: After Frank and Brenda's Second-Act Breakup, they all return to their original aisles. This doesn't last long, though.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: A Jewish Bagel, a Muslim Lavash, and a Hispanic Taco aren't the type of crew you'd usually see.
  • Straight Gay: All three turn out to be homosexual, but their normal behavior prevents this fact from being obvious at first glance.


Kareem Abdul Lavash
"I am to have 77 bottles of extra virgin olive oil!"

Voiced by: David Krumholtz, Luis Daniel Ramírez (Mexican Spanish Dub)

  • Defrosting Ice King: He and Sammy initially hate each other as an allegory/parody of the Arab–Israeli Conflict, but they learn to love each other after finding out that they're both friends with Hummus.
  • Jerkass: He's not the nicest of products towards Frank, Brenda, and especially Sammy to begin with. Thankfully, he's nowhere near as bad as Douche.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While he is somewhat of an angry dick towards Frank and Brenda at first, its kind of hard to blame him when he correctly points out that their actions have screwed them and several other products out of going to the Great Beyond.
  • Perpetual Frowner: He's not much of a smiler.
  • Punny Name: His full name is a reference to Muslim basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Or Seldom Seen Food in this case. This is one of the very few on screen appearances of a Lavash in film. It's even Lampshaded by Douche at one point.
    Douche: And what we got here? A taco? A whiny donut? And some stupid flappy thing that nobody knows exactly what it is.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: With Sammy. After being at each other's throats the whole movie, they fall for each other by the end.
  • Stereotype: Of Muslims, due to lavash being a popular flatbread in Islamic countries like Turkey and Iran; He has bushy eyebrows and a goatee, a large hooked nose, and his arm flaps resemble the sleeves of Middle Eastern robes. He believes that the great beyond shall grant him 77 Virgin Olive Oils, says that Brenda should cover herself up, and is at odds with Sammy Bagel Jr, a Jewish stereotype.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Easily comes off as the most aggressive of Frank's friends.


Sammy Bagel, Jr.
"Hi, I'm Sammy Bagel, Jr. I'm happy to meet all of you. Well, except for this meshugganuh cunt over here."

Voiced by: Edward Norton, José Antonio Macías (Mexican Spanish dub)

Voiced by: Salma Hayek, Verónica López Treviño (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Beauty Mark: Below her left eye.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Delivers one in Spanish to Douche for terrorizing the group. Then tops it off with an English "Go fuck yourself, El Douche".
  • Good Bad Girl: Stares at Brenda's legs and admits to feeling horny for her, but is presented positively. Teresa even alerts Brenda, Lavash, and Sammy of the danger they are in upon first meeting them and prevents Douche from killing them.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Her facial features are designed to resemble those of her voice actress, Salma Hayek.
  • Spicy Latina: A sexy Hispanic lady with street smarts and a hot temper.
  • Straight Gay: Teresa develops a crush on Brenda and has no sexual interest in any of the male characters, but does not fit any of the expected personality types for fictional lesbian characters.

The Non-Perishables

     In General
From L to R: Mr. Grits, Firewater, and Twink.

  • The Ageless: As they note, the fact that they're not going to expire means that, so long as they aren't thrown out or bought, they're effectively immortal.
  • Artist Disillusionment: They had to watch their song get Macekred with the lyrics being changed just to fit that Food's agenda.
  • Brand X: "Firewater" and "Mr. Grits" are the names of both the brands and the characters.
  • Freudian Trio: Philosophical Firewater is The Superego, angry Mr. Grits is The Id, and Twink mediates between the two as The Ego.
  • He Knows Too Much: Firewater and Mr. Grits try to pull this off on Frank, but are stopped by Twink.
  • Let Them Die Happy: The whole reason they invented "The Great Beyond" is so that food wouldn't go to their deaths without the slightest hope to comfort them.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Averted. Firewater and Mr. Grits decide to kill Frank after he asks them about "The Great Beyond". Twink however tells both of them that everyone will become suspicious if they kill him, so they spare him and tell him the truth.
  • The Stoner: As Firewater puts it, "We blaze for real, 24/7."



Voiced By: Bill Hader, Octavio Rojas (Mexican Spanish dub)

     Mr. Grits 

Mr. Grits
"We the non-perishables, mothafucka!"

Voiced by: Craig Robinson, Enrique Cervantes (Mexican Spanish dub)


"Once you see that shit, it'll fuck you up for life!"

Voiced by: Scott Underwood, Víctor Ugarte (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Camp Gay: He acts effeminate as seen in the red band trailer. At one point, he kisses Frank on the lips.
  • The Ego: To Firewater's Superego and Mr. Grits' Id.
  • Meaningful Name: "Twink" is a slang for an attractive gay man with no pubic hair. Also, he's a Twinkie.
  • Pragmatic Hero: Points out that people will get suspicious if they kill Frank and that, besides, he has most likely figured out the truth anyway.
  • Token Good Teammate: Whilst the non-perishables aren't exactly evil, it is Twink gets Firewater and Mr. Grits to spare Frank (although more out of pragmatism than any moral opposition) and is the one who tells Frank where to find the Cookbook.
  • The Twink: A rather literal example. It's more than likely he was conceived as a pastiche of this trope, given this movie's sense of humour.
  • The Un-Smile: Gives several of these.
  • Visual Pun: Twink is a Twinkie. He also has stereotypical "twink"-like behavior and mannerisms. note  How does Twink look?

The Villains


"Come at me, bros!"

Voiced by: Nick Kroll, Ricardo Tejedo (Mexican Spanish dub)

A literal douche who is the Big Bad. Unlike the foods that have been chosen, he doesn't need to worry about being eaten by Camille Toh and is actually looking forward to being used.

  • Achilles' Heel: His leaking.
  • A God Am I: Proclaims this because he drank grape juice and vodka, then shoved himself up Darren's ass.
  • Anything That Moves: He has no problem shoving himself up Darren's ass at the end.
  • Ass Shove: Ends up doing this to Darren, which is the means by which he manipulates him like a human puppet.
  • Brand X: The box he was in was labeled "Freshlicious".
  • Big Bad Ensemble: While he isn't really the main conflict driver of the story, he wants Frank and Brenda dead for having his nozzle bent and denying him a chance to be bought. He eventually decides to upgrade himself to sole Big Bad status when he shoves himself up in Darren's ass and use him to kill them and the rest of the food.
  • Big Bad Slippage: He wasn't evil at the beginning, he was just a Douche. And then the cart he was in collides with another…
  • Booze-Based Buff: He gets stronger with every alcoholic liquid he consumes.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Due to douching being analogous to sex on the douche's end, his eagerness to be used by Camille and forcing himself into Darren makes him this.
    Douche: "A hole's a hole!"
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?:
    • Drinking out the juice box through the crotch and crawling up Darren's backside both resemble rape, though the juice box's case is not Played for Laughs as Darren's is.
    • His constant "juicing" and his arms growing more muscular and vein-covered is also an obvious parody of steroid use.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even Douche of all bad guys falls into this trope. When the groceries fall out of the trolley Douche tries to warn a bag of chips to run as fast as he can from the trolley but despite his encouragement Chips gets killed by being hit by the wheels.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He is introduced when Camille puts him in her cart, and he starts acting like a frat boy when he gets chosen. He mocks Chips for being fat and acts like it was a joke while giving him a nut shot. Then he starts getting uncomfortably close to one of the mixers before proudly saying he is a douche.
  • Fangs Are Evil: When Douche prepares to bite Frank, one fang is clearly visible inside his mouth.
  • Faux Affably Evil: To Tequila right before killing him.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He starts off as, well… a Douche, but he slowly becomes a mass-murdering killing machine.
  • Green and Mean: When he has drained the alcoholic liquid from enough bottles, his whole body turns from white to a sickly green.
  • Handy Feet: He has only a set of 2 arms which he uses as legs too.
  • Hate Sink: Douche embodies his name both literally and figuratively. At first acting like a cocky frat bro over finally being purchased, he completely snaps and vows revenge on Frank for seemingly causing him to be rendered unusable in an accident. Douche proceeds to bulk himself up by murdering various products in ways analogous to rape before forcing himself up a store clerk's ass to control him so he can massacre everybody Frank loves.
  • Hijacking Cthulhu: The climax has him hijack Darren the store manager to do his bidding.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Since he's already filled with liquid, him drinking alcohol essentially makes him this.
  • It's All About Me: He feels no sympathy for any of the food items that were seriously injured after Frank's attempt at rescuing Honey Mustard from suicide fails and only cares about his missed opportunity to get used by Camille Toh.
  • Jerkass: Even before his Big Bad Slippage, he's still a complete and utter asshole. Of course, this means he is a Douche who is a douche.
  • Knight of Cerebus: As the film goes on, he becomes less humorous and turns into a much darker villain.
  • Lack of Empathy: He feels no remorse for any of the Foods he kills.
  • Meaningful Name: He really lives up to his name!
  • Neck Snap: He does it to a (living) bottle of vodka, before drinking its content.
  • No Fourth Wall: Douche breaks the fourth wall by saying the beat (music) is sick.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently, he did something to the Mexican Foods before the events of the film that caused him to be feared by them and referred to as "El Douche".
  • Only Sane Man: Douche is the only item in the store who understands what humans will do with him.
  • One-Winged Angel: His physical appearance gets increasingly monstrous as he consumes alcohol.
  • Plot-Irrelevant Villain: His revenge scheme against Frank and Brenda has little bearing on Frank's quest to discover the truth, and he and Frank never interact again until he takes control of Darren.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Has absolutely no filter regarding other food products or just saying insanely offensive things.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: The way he sucks the juice out of a Juice Box and shoving himself up Darren's ass without the latter's consent.
  • Running Gag: He keeps accidentally making food puns ("How do ya like them apples?", "Spill the beans!", etc.) which causes the nearby food in question to pop up in confusion. It gets to a point where Queso mistakes him saying "Okay, so..." as his name, which irritates Douche. By the end of the movie, he intentionally makes the classic Relish, Mustard, and Ketchup puns, with the condiments in question too scared of him to stand up.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: He embodies all of them at different points in the movie.
    • He's Envious of all the other Douches that got bought because they got to be used.
    • He Gluttonously murders cans and bottles of alcohol in order make himself stronger.
    • He Greedily wants everything for himself no matter who gets in his way.
    • He was Lusting after Camille before his Big Bad Slippage.
    • He's very Prideful of himself to the point of A God Am I.
    • He Sloths around by forcing Tequila to kidnap Brenda rather than doing it himself.
    • His entire motivation for being a villain is because of his Wrath at Frank for causing him to never be allowed to get used.
  • Vampiric Draining: Murders and consumes other liquid products to restore and empower himself.
  • Verbal Tic: He frequently ends his sentences with "bro" when addressing someone else.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: It's more of a Crapsaccharine Show, but he still fits the bill.
  • Visual Pun: He's a literal and figurative douche.


"Some milf dropped a douche."

Voiced by: Paul Rudd, Noé Velázquez (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Ass Shove: Ends up on the recieving end of this from Douche, which is the means by which Douche manipulates him like a human puppet.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: When Frank is hanging from the front of his open pants, Darren tries pulling him off.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Dies by having his dustbin turned into an improvised rocket, which goes flying into the sky and blowing him into giblets.
  • The Dreaded: In contrast with them wanting to go home with the shoppers, all the Food live in fear of being thrown away by him, which is exactly what happens when they reach their expiration date.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The food calls him "the Dark Lord."
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses and has a nasty personality.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Both chooses a weapon and gets chosen as a weapon when any concern about collateral damage becomes moot. First he produces a huge revolver from his safe box when the food and the customers start battling, hoping to; immediately afterwards, Douche uses him by sticking himself up Darren's ass when the battle between the Food and Humans prevents the former from getting to Frank.
  • Gonk: Compared to all the other humans seen in the film, he looks unnaturally thin and has heavily exaggerated facial features.
  • Hand Cannon: Keeps a magnum revolver of exaggerated proportions in a locked box under the counter; and starts wildly shooting it when Douche takes over his body.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His trash pail is turned against him when Barry uses it to launch both him and Douche in to the sky, where they blow up.
  • Hollywood Nerd: He looks like an stereotypical nerd.
  • Humans Are Bastards: His attitude towards the Food is that of a bastard.
  • Jerkass: He hates his job, and he takes it out on the Food. Even when interacting with other humans he comes across as rather unpleasant and creepy.
  • People Puppets: Douche takes control of Darren by sticking a nozzle up his ass and steering him where he wants to go.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    "Fuck you, Weenies!"
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He's just a stock boy doing his job in the supermarket.
  • Satan: Of the Food's religion, anyways. They see him as the Prince of Darkness, punishing the unworthy/wicked by throwing them into a Bottomless Pit after a single, contemptuous utterance of "Fuck you, [food to be thrown out]."
  • Soul-Sucking Retail Job: Seems to be trying to get fired. He's rude to the customers and swears all the time. He comments that "I hate this fuckin' job!"
  • Tom the Dark Lord: Darren is a rather mundane name considering his role in the film. And the food outright call him "the Dark Lord."
  • Ultimate Job Security: The way he treats the customers (calling Camille a "MILF" over the intercom, for one thing), he ought to have been fired a long time ago. It seems he doesn't care any more and is actively trying to get fired.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The fact that he talks to the Food before throwing them into the trash may be a catalyst in Frank's rebellion against the Humans.

Other Foods

     Honey Mustard 

Honey Mustard

Voiced by: Danny McBride, Dafnis Fernández (Mexican Spanish dub)

A jar of honey mustard who is returned to the store due to a human wanting regular mustard instead of honey mustard, who warns the Food about the outside world, foreshadowing what awaits Barry and Carl among the other purchased foods once they're brought home.

  • A Date with Rosie Palms: This was apparently one of the things he saw during his time in "The Great Beyond". He compares The Masquerade to getting money-shot in the eyes, for one thing.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: After getting picked up again (this time, intentionally), he decides that jumping out of the cart is a much better idea than to go back to "The Great Beyond".
  • Brand X: He's a jar of "Bickle's Honey Mustard".
  • Break the Haughty: During his scenes in the big opening number of the film, he was mostly acting like an asshole calling everyone "bitches" and "motherfuckers" and also telling them to kiss his "brownish-yellow ass." When he returns to the store, he is utterly broken and traumatized by his experience in "The Great Beyond" to the point of committing suicide.
  • Cassandra Truth: He's the only food item that is aware of the fate some of the foods will face when they get chosen. The other food items don't believe him and start making fun of him.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: He flips both birds to Camille, before committing suicide.
  • Driven to Suicide: He later commits suicide by jumping off the cart Frank and Brenda were on.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: The main reason why Brenda believes he's crazy is because she can't tell if he's Honey or Mustard.
  • Foil: To Gum. Both are Foods who have been taken out into "The Great Beyond" and witness what really happens to Food when they go there. But while Gum never gave up the will to live and became "the most intelligent being alive", Honey Mustard becomes traumatized by what he had seen that he decides that the only way to end his suffering is with the sweet release of death.
    • Like Firewater, he also knows the truth about humans. Unlike Firewater, where the revelation doesn't drive him insane, Honey Mustard chooses to commit suicide instead of simply living in hiding from the humans.
  • For Want of a Nail: This entire movie would've never happened had he not been accidentally bought, then returned.
  • Gone Mad From The Revelation: He became so traumatized by his ordeal in the "Great Beyond" he kills himself.
  • Hates Being Touched: So paranoid and defensive from his ordeal that he threatens anyone who tries to touch him.
  • He Knows Too Much: Firewater threatens to kill him if he tells the other Foods the truth, though it's unlikely they would believe him anyway.
  • Jerkass: He's not a very pleasant person. He constantly yells at the top of his lungs to emphasize his anger, constantly swears, calls the kecthup bottle a "dumb red piece of shit", and overreacts to the pettiest of offenses.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: As obnoxious as he is and abrasive to the other foods, he does make a good point about the Great Beyond being the exact opposite of what the foods dream of and the fact that they're being chosen for death.
  • Large Ham: Rants to all the other food about the lie of the great beyond without holding back any of his craziness.
  • Laughing Mad: As he falls to his death.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: His speech on "The Great Beyond" is what causes Frank to start to lose his faith. He then kills himself seconds later.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: He did not take his visit to a human's home very well.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He may only be in the movie for all of one scene, but he sets off Frank's quest to find the truth about The Great Beyond.
  • You Have to Believe Me!: Acts so unhinged and loony while screaming about the fate of food that it's no wonder no one believes him.


"The poipes, the poipes are call—oh Jesus--!!! Fuck!"

Voiced by: Greg Tiernan, Christian Strempler (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Brand X: The bag he came in was labeled "Bag O' Gees".
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: He gets skinned and boiled alive.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: The tiny sprouts of his body, IE: Potato Eyes
  • Flaying Alive: As the woman peels his skin.
  • Irony: How fitting is it that he happened to be singing "Danny Boy" (a well known funeral song) right before Camille starts peeling his skin.
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: He is the first of many foods to be killed by the woman.
  • Oireland: Being a potato, he speaks in an Irish accent. Bonus points for his voice actor being Irish, well Irish-Canadian.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: His death is what causes Barry to realize Humans Are Cthulhu.
  • Stereotype: Potatoes are strongly associated with Irish stereotypes.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Not at first, but he starts letting loose the moment Camille starts peeling his skin.
  • Wham Shot: The moment the woman starts peeling his skin. At first, Potato is jubilant that he has been chosen, personally being ferried to The Great Beyond as the rest of the food below cheer and wish him well. And then the knife comes out.

  • And I Must Scream: Defied, just like his real life counterpart; being stuck under the table of a scientist allowed him to gain knowledge by listening to them and he uses that knowledge to create a way for him to move around.
  • Badass Boast: After being shot by Darren:
    Matter cannot be created or destroyed human, you have made a fatal error in judgement. Let me to educate you.
  • Big Good: He gives Barry the information needed to kill the gods and find a way back to the supermarket. Gum even joins Barry and Frank's revolution and works with Firewater to discover that they're actually cartoon characters, starting off another adventure.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: While he maybe "the most intelligent being alive", he'd rather spend most of his time saying his full name (which is actually the list of his ingredients) than actually being helpful. Even when he's facing up against Darren or getting a lap dance from strips of Gum, he still feels the need to tell them what his full name is.
  • Catchphrase: "Perhaps I can be of some assistance."
  • Cool Old Guy: He's been stuck under tables for many years.
  • Dirty Old Man: He has some Female Gum Strips lap dance for him during the Orgy scene, though of course nobody else at the supermarket was a virgin either.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: He is introduced 3/4 into the movie, but boy he does leave a mark.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Firewater says he's "fuck a guy" smart.
  • Foil: To Honey Mustard. Both are Foods who have been taken out into "The Great Beyond" and witness what really happens to Food when they go there. But while Honey Mustard became traumatized by what he had seen that he decided that the only way to end his suffering is with the sweet release of death, Gum never gives up the will to live and becomes "the most intelligent being alive".
  • Genius Cripple: The tables he had been stuck under were those of scientists.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's based on Stephen Hawking, right down to the computerized voice and wheelchair.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Darren shoots him in the face, only for him to regrow his face back like nothing happened.
  • Overly Long Name: His full name is actually a list of all the ingredients of chewing gum.

     Sauerkraut Hitler 

Sauerkraut Hitler

Voiced by: Conrad Vernon, Jesse Conde (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's as disgusted as everyone else when Frank tries to disprove "The Great Beyond".
  • Hypocritical Humor: He calls Frank an "Intolerant Bastard" when he tells everyone that "The Great Beyond" is a lie.
  • Karmic Rape: He gets dry humped by a carton of Juice during the Orgy scene while yelling NEIN! repeatedly.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He hates "the Juice".
  • Stealth Pun: "Kraut", short for "Sauerkraut", was a slang word used for Germans during World War II.



Camille Toh

Voiced by: Lauren Miller-Rogen, Magdalena Tenorio (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When she bisects Carl, her face is in shadow with two red eyes, like cigarette ends.
  • Hartman Hips: Has very large hips and Douche just wants to get between them.
  • Hidden Eyes: Shown with her eyes hidden in shadow before she consumes the baby carrots and bifurcates Carl, reflecting how from the food's perspective she seems to have turned into a sadistic monster.
  • Karma Houdini: Doesn't receive any comeuppance for killing and eating the food she eats.
  • Male Gaze: The camera spends a few seconds focusing on her butt and crotch at different points in the film.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Downplayed, as she disappears from the film relatively early on. But she is the human woman with the most raunchy uses of her screentime with the aforementioned Male Gaze.
  • Obliviously Evil: Has no idea that food is self-aware and can feel pain, so she massacres food without percieving the torture she's inflicting.
  • Punny Name: A pun off this in case the joke goes over one's head.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: To the food she appears to have terrifying glowing red eyes when she slices the tomato in half.
  • Rule of Symbolism: Camille Toh can be seen as a metaphor for global warming (anthropogenic climate change) confirmed by scientists to dangerously affect people's health, given that many religious followers dismiss global warming as either a hoax or just a scientific theory the same way foods dismiss the "theory" that humans eat foods since the foods are too occupied believing the humans are benevolent gods.
  • Stacy's Mom: Darren thinks so and even openly refers to as a "MILF." Whether she actually is a mom or not is never confirmed as any children of hers are never seen.
  • Would Hurt a Child: As so eloquently put by Carl...
    Carl: "They're eating children! FUCKING CHILDREN!"

The Druggie
"You're all alive and looking at me with your... with your gloves and your... your little shoes and your arms and your legs!"

Voiced by: James Franco, Eduardo Ramírez (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Cruel and Unusual Death: He kills himself by accident when he bumps his head, and set off a chain reaction which ends with a decorative axe falling and chopping his head off. Which means he pretty much died alone as a sad drug abuser. He essentially swore off food in general which if he had remembered as Barry had expected, would have ended in death by starvation.
  • Dies Wide Open: When the Druggie is decapitated, his eyes are still open.
  • Fat Bastard: When he tries to eat Barry.
  • Funny Afro: It would give Moss a run for his money.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: Once he sees the Food world, he pretty much loses it and has no idea what to do until he falls asleep and the bath salts wear off.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: He promises Barry and the others that he will never eat again. You can guess what happens next.
  • Higher Understanding Through Drugs: He is able to see the Foods as alive because he is high off bath salts.
  • Humiliation Conga: After his drug high, he tries to kill Barry by boiling him. He screws that up, tries to get Barry, getting hot water on himself and eventually decapitated.
  • Ignored Epiphany: He is completely horrified when he sees the Foods as living, breathing beings he's been eating his whole life, so much so that he swears to never eat again. Then he sobers up, eats the Potato Chip Bag, and tries to eat Barry.
  • Morton's Fork: His entire situation. See Cruel and Unusual Death above.
  • No Name Given: Even in the credits, he is called just "Druggie".
  • Obliviously Evil: Doesn't know anything about food being alive, because through his (and other people's) eyes, they never EVER move or have human features. The only way he could see them at all is due to taking liquified bath salts (which is self destructive in itself), and afterwards, he just thinks it's a hallucination and nothing more and tries to eat something because of the munchies. When he believes that the food is alive, he is shocked, and guilt-ridden over what that entails.
  • Off with His Head!: Gets decapitated by his own axe.
  • Stoners Are Funny: Fat, lazy, completely off his rocker once he discovers the truth, and high off bath salts. The guy is a total clown.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Sure, leaving a metal axe on the wall is a safe idea, isn't it? Not to mention that when he swears off food, he's completely ignorant to the fact that if he eats no more foods, he will starve to death. Lampshaded by Frank:
    Frank: (to Barry) You got lucky and killed a stupid one!


How well does it match the trope?
